Improved Daily Living

Support with everyday life skills

Get support to improve or get the skills needed to live as independently as possible at home, and participate more in your community.

If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category ‘improved daily living’ in your NDIS plan, you can access the supports below.


Individual assessment and therapy

If you need equipment or assistive technology to live more independently or for accessing the community, our health professionals can assess and provide support in finding the best equipment suited to your needs and disability.

Community nursing care for high needs

If you need specialist nursing care relating to your disability, our registered nurses will come to your home to provide training to you, your carer, or our care staff to ensure that you have the skills and support you need to live independently at home.

We also provide assistance with managing continence concerns through assessment and recommendation from one of our skilled registered nurses.

If you require nursing that is not related to your disability, please contact us on 1800 Ozcare (1800 692 273) to discuss options that may be available to you.

Support Categories

Each support category contains a number of services that you can choose from to help achieve your goals. You can use your budget for any of services within that support category, but you are unable to use this budget for services within another support category. In some cases, you may be approved for a specific support (rather than a category). In this case, you will need to use your budget for this specific service only.
